2019 Welcome


Welcome to the 2019 UNO Engineering Forum (UNOEF) and 2019 Southeast Symposium for Contemporary Engineering Topics (SSCET). And so many thanks for your partnership and support of the events since 2009 -- this is our 10th anniversary of collaboration in serving the community. We're growing and have continuously exceeded our annual goals since then!

The theme of this year's UNOEF+SSCET is Smart Cities.

The joint event will be held on Friday, September 13, 2019 in the University Center of the Lakefront Campus. It will offer several parallel technical tracks providing solutions to contemporary engineering topics in almost all aspects of engineering practices by providing up to Eight Professional Development Hours in a one-day span including keynote speaker, luncheon speaker, panel of experts on Smart Cities topics, individual 30-minute presentations, up to Two Ethics Hours, networking, lunch, coffee breaks, and live music mid day! We look forward to your support and to seeing you again at the University of New Orleans on Friday, September 13, 2019.

The University Center (UC)

The 2019 UNO Engineering Forum will be hosted on the second floor of the University Center (UC). Just off Elysian Fields Ave, the UC provides a number of large, open spaces that lends itself to events and serves as a natural gathering spot.

Parking will be provided in the lot adjacent to the UC at the corner of Elysian Fields Ave and Alumni Dr. The Forum itself will be held on the second floor of the UC.


All of our block's rooms have been taken. Thank you all for your support! If you would like help locating other accommodations, please contact us.

We have made arrangements with the
